JMM presents Black Peaches

Please note this is an 18+ event

Black Peaches are touring in support of their long awaited new album ‘Fire in The Hole’ which is released in May.

‘Fire in The Hole’ is a dazzling display of musicianship – even more accomplished than their critically acclaimed 2016 debut ‘Get Down You Dirty Rascals’.

Black Peaches come from a musical point halfway between the swamp and the tropics – a psychotropic stew of country boogie, spiritual jazz and funk.

With fuzz-toned slide guitars, Latin percussion and shimmering keyboards, Black Peaches sound is a cinematic experience, the soundtrack to a bar fight at the country disco or an incantation of the black arts.

The band are led by Rob Smoughton, probably best known as a long-time member of Hot Chip and Scritti Politti, and whose alter-ego Grovesnor has released a number of albums to critical acclaim. To form Black Peaches, Rob hand-picked a diverse group of London’s finest musical collaborators in order to create a band that is much more than the sum of its parts.

Black Peaches’ highly regarded musicians have also worked with Floating Points, Alexis Taylor, Zongamin, Karl Blau, Karen Elson, Vanishing Twin, Cold Specks, Reverend John Wilkins, The Severed Limb and many others.
